2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car as a summer toy and alternative commuter vehicle instead of my gas guzzling SUV. I had also considered the Pontiac Solstice, but found the level of fit, finish and refinement greater in the MX-5. It's obvious that improvements in the 19 years of production put the MX-5 as the front runner of affordable roadsters. It doesn't have the performance of a Porsche Boxster, or the panache of a BMW Z4, but at less than half the price, who cares! Popping the top down in 3 seconds for the drive home on a sunny day is priceless.

Best Features

Short throw shifter, ease of lowering/raising top.

Worst Features

Next design could be a little more aggressive to help shed the Miata's image as a 'girly' car.
